Thanking God for 2013

Well, it was time to make up our calendar for the new year. As I’ve mentioned, I try not to look too far ahead and here’s why. As I looked out to June, July, August of 2014, I began to wonder if Gorman would still be with me through the Summer. When I got to next Thanksgiving, I wondered what that would look like; would he have had another recurrence or even would I be alone. So, enough of my little calendar pity party. I thought back over 2013, a year I never thought I’d get to spend with Gorman. And what a wonderful year it has been. How can I feel anything other than gratitude to God for the gift of a wonderful year?
